ODCC 2019, Open Data Center Summit, took place in Beijing, China. Thousands of data center experts participated in this summit to share cutting-edge technologies such as open data center infrastructure standardization, 5G, and edge computing infrastructure. At the conference, Inspur utilized 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors to demonstrate a number of solutions based on Inspur’s OTII-standardized edge computing server, aimed at handling challenges of edge business.

With the rapid development of 5G and the emergence of edge services, edge computing deployment is required in many business scenarios like intelligent manufacturing, smart city, IOV, AR/VR and other verticals where latency and bandwidth are the bottlenecks. In addition, how to meet the performance requirements of edge services under physical constraints, such as space, power supply, and load-bearing, has become an unavoidable problem for the edge business.

vBNG solution maximizes port bandwidth and CPU resources

With the growing scale of telecommunication services and increasingly diverse business types, the pressure on the existing metro access networks has become accordingly severe. From the perspective of responding to market demand, saving on construction investment costs, or simplifying operation and maintenance management, carriers are in urgent need of new technologies to improve existing network facilities.

The vBNG solution demonstrated by Inspur with 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors is an ideal solution for carriers to optimize network performance based on SDN/NFV technology which evolves BRAS functions from high-cost proprietary hardware to low-cost general-purpose servers to adapt to various edge business, improve network capabilities and reduce the cost of network deployment.

The solution utilizes Inspur’s OTII-based edge computing server as the hardware platform, equipped with 2nd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors and Intel® Ethernet Network Adapter XXV710 with Dynamic Device Personalization, as well as SertusNet FlexBNG software. This configuration enables great performance improvement, which can effectively reduce packet processing latency, increase throughput, and enhance the utilization of multi-core processors.
